I don't discuss my personal choices with people (it's a family thing- we never discussed politics, religion or money issues, and I am still uncomfortable doing so! Not necessarily a good thing, but there it is) but I do wish that people would do their homework and try and learn how a party can affect an individual/ community/ country before voting/ not voting.
At my age (ahem) I've been through several elections, and have always tried to understand what a party is offering; but I often hear and see people saying "I've always voted [insert party of choice here], and always will". Absolutely fine if they still offer you your best choice, but not if it's habit.
Party Politics, like people, change and morph over years as leaders come and go, and the country goes through different situations. No matter how hard any party tries, it cannot suit everyone.
*have just read this back and think I sound like a politician myself! Heigh-ho.............*
